Chief Imam of Unguwar Gwari Central Mosque, Sheik Sule Atitogo, on Friday called on Nigerians to pray for the safe return of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Atitogo spoke during the Friday sermons.
“Nigerians should develop the habit of praying for their leaders for God’s guidance in ensuring good democratic government.
“Nigerians should ignore comments by rumour mill and pray for the president.
“God has a reason for creating us with different tribes, background, ethnic and religious differences.
“We must be seen to be tolerant of one another for peace, progress and political stability of our country,’’ he said.
He also called on Nigerians to support the efforts of security agencies by coming forward with useful information that could lead to the arrest and prosecutions of miscreants in the society.
